The Silicon Engineering Computing Development team in Raleigh is seeking passionate, driven, and intellectually curious computer/electrical engineers to deliver premium-quality designs once considered impossible. Our team is involved in numerous projects within Microsoft developing custom silicon for a diverse set of systems ranging from traditional computing solutions to artificial intelligence and augmented reality. Looking for highly motivated engineer to join our front-end RTL development team covering micro-architecture implementation, RTL Coding, IP integration and design quality assurance, for our projects We are responsible for delivering cutting-edge, custom CPU and SoC designs that can perform complex and high-performance functions in an efficient manner.

In this high impact role on the team, you will be responsible for:

  • Define the micro-architectural implementation spec for a functional block.
  • Implement the micro-architectural specification in Verilog or System Verilog.
  • Continue to grow your micro-architectural knowledge of your own blocks as well as other blocks in the SOC.
  • Continue to assess and then refine the implementation for area, power and performance.
  • Integration of various functional blocks into SOC.
  • Exercise the functionality of the block by writing basic tests and debug for various features at IP and SoC levels as deemed necessary.
  • Perform design quality checks such as Lint, CDC, Low Power Intent
  • Define, Implement, deploy new methodologies and train the team.
  • Work with chip architects and design teams to understand architectural goalsandhigh-levelrequirements.
  • Work with the physical design team to understand design requirements, create physical partitioning, and close constraints.
  • Work with the verification team to ensure SOC quality.
  • Delight your customers who receive your deliverable by providing high quality functional block on schedule and with professional integrity.
